strongly object to handing the krill islands over to japan but the overwhelming majority of the respondents have never visited this territory and are very unlikely to do so in the future the audience may be an integral part of russia on the map but they cannot make clear and logistical way there are still very march for inland some of the r.c. in russia's forests. the trip to the islands comes on the heels of madrid a visit to vietnam and a summit of southeast asian countries and neuer multibillion dollar deals were signed and russia agreed to build the country's first nuclear power plant dimitri medvedev also stressed the need to help vietnam develop as a powerful and modern state the two sides signed additional agreements on construction of a hydro power station and cooperation in the oil sector moscow seeks to strengthen already well established ties with the former soviet ally.

the first ever joint us russian anti drugs operation in war torn afghanistan has been hailed a success special forces knocked out for drug labs on the afghan border with pakistan and confiscated a ton of heroin worth hundreds of millions of dollars afghan president hamid karzai condemned the operation claiming it violated the country's sovereignty but russian officials say karzai statement is confusing as the red brigade was led by the afghan interior ministry. reports that some moscow some for some moscow's part of the u.s. led mission came as a complete shock. for this one dies so did this one group and this one group or this one died too well this one lost his leg. and he got a mush is showing his quote ritts killed in the soviet war in afghanistan two decades ago only four out of the fourteen in this picture made it out alive under

a was a command over mine disposal unit in kandahar in two years his school board lost thirty five people dozens of others last glimpse at third of all mines he used against soviet soldiers were american made. the us were enemy which supplied the mujahideen with the quick mint weapons medicine it was american strong in a silence which helped shoot down our planes. two decades after the soviet army is x. it and dre was taken aback to find out that russia was back in afghanistan again this time with its former anime. these are the pictures he saw on the news reports for drug producing lapse on the border between afghanistan and pakistan were destroyed in a special rate and a ton of heroin worth over two hundred million dollars. after we gave information
12:08 am
to our u.s. and afghan partners the three sides planned the operation for three months we used about seventy special forces units three landing helicopters and six supporting ones the whole operation lasted less than four hours. but many experts say washington needed a push before it started to act it's unbelievable to me that it took russia to tell the united states where the drug labs were when we have a hundred thousand troops we've spent eighty billion dollars on intelligence we have one hundred thousand additional contractors so we had to know were crawling all over every inch of that country but it took a year or two in fact to out the united states to force us and to embarrass us to cooperate with you to stop the drug trade which is in the interest of the entire world including the united states with more of the drug passing through its forges than any other country russia is convinced that the skin which must be confronted
12:09 am
at its source however those who know first hand what fighting in afghanistan is like learning against being drawn into a full scale war because. of course there should be special operations carried out against drug cartels but again special units should be in charge of this nineteen year old boys should not be recruited for the job every single operation should be planned in detail starting from the intelligence sections of the operation itself and the wrapping up of the operation it's easy to get trapped in this war and hard to get out of it as long as islamist militancy and drunks emanating from of ghana's stand are seen as a threat to its national security rush is likely to remain a force in the region even as the u.s. works out an x. it strategy. faced with bigger war is less reliable maybe the region the united states and nato appear willing to accept growing russian influence at this point

they need all the help they can get at the gathering florrie opportunity in afghanistan is a sign. and this time around how does the us cold war anime but as a mordant a ally it still got trouble r.t. . in a few minutes the ethnically diverse iraqi city of kirkuk is a real winner box we take you on a raid to prevent the site from becoming a hotbed for terror attacks. russia and georgia could be entangled in a spy scandal with reports tbilisi detained twenty people on friday for espionage an anonymous source quoted by reuters said those detained are all georgian and are suspected of being part of a spy network gathering information from moscow the georgian interior ministry has so far refused to comment and says it won't do so until next week russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov said moscow is not aware of any details as there are no
12:11 am
diplomatic relations between the two countries experts say tbilisi's evasion it shows how authoritarian country actually is. when someone is arrested they're entitled to due process that means they can call a lawyer that family members can be contacted therefore arrests are announced and it never happens i can't tell you how bizarre idea is to hear a police spokesman say. i can neither confirm nor deny that arrests have taken place secret arrests are the hallmark of a police state there is a new law before the georgian parliament which is called the freedom charter and it's something akin to the patriot act in the united states it will drastically increase the powers of the security service it passed its first meeting in the in the georgian part arlen recently and it is possible that someone is trying to whip up. a social mood to support that one of the country's opposition leaders says
12:12 am
tbilisi uses the slightest link to russia as an excuse to prosecute these kind of charges russian links russian ties russian is spirit which is always used in georgia's police gunned i just know anything about these people but i know that it's quite enough to be some hold link to reason our show knowing your spinach may be easier but if you were a business a russian family in russia and you were raised in georgia it's quite enough for georgia law enforcement officers to make criminal use. iraqi lawmakers are demanding their government investigate allegations of war crimes the police comes a week after the online whistleblower wiki leaks released four hundred thousand to secret u.s. documents on the war in iraq the files detail american forces handling prisoners
12:13 am
and handing them over to iraqi interrogators despite overwhelming evidence of torture the data also shed light on fifteen thousand killings over the past six years which had been previously unaccounted for iraq's prime minister nouri al maliki says the revelations are aimed at undermining the country's political stability but that's an overreaction and an unlikely motivation for the leak according to one leading expert on the country. i think that would be very doubtful to imagine that the wiki leaks and the soldiers responsible for giving these documents to them had the undermining of the iraqi government in mind when they chose this date and let's bear in mind that there hasn't been an iraqi government for seven months so. many dates to choose from when it comes to releasing this in a sense this is u.s. military documents really unlike any previous media story or report from iraq this is words from their own mouth which makes it very difficult for them to deny it and
12:14 am
they're not really doing that if you actually listen to what the state department spokesman is saying what they talk about is the critical nature of the nature of the leaks and whether u.s. soldiers or informers or people working with the u.s. will be put in danger by them talking about the method of the message rather than the message itself now the message itself paints a very different picture of the iraq the americans have been telling us about the last seven years some fifteen thousand iraqi deaths have not been accounted for so the history of iraq is being written by these documents which are as i say from the americans miles themselves. fifty thousand u.s. troops remain in iraq to train and support local security forces but in many places like kurdish controlled kirkuk the legacy of the american led invasion remains an uncertain one people there fear a civil war could eventually robt as sebastian meyer reports. a dawn raid a race against time to catch militants off guard in the iraqi province of kirkuk we're in the suburb of duck cook and the police have just a few minutes to get into position before sunrise. daybreak's in the raid begins
12:15 am
police under the supervision of the u.s. army go door to door searching rooms and checking residents against lists of unknown terrorists. dominated heavily by kurds have been remarkably successful recently they've cut terror attacks by over fifty percent in the past few months these guys are very good they are very good and they're very good at intelligence and develop they are gathering intelligence and developing intelligence and they are subversion he's not worried about it but others mainly the city's non kurds are here in downtown they're going to live with her charity target but with her own historic claim on that kirkuk is a unique city in iraq a true melting pot of all the different ethnicities in the country but this mixture continues to lead to extremely volatile ethnic tensions a two thousand and nine field report that was recently leaked by the whistleblower wiki leaks states that without strong and fair influence likely from
12:16 am
a third party these tensions may quickly turn to violence after the u.s. forces withdraw all of this will in terms of security when the u.s. leaves there will be no independent security force right now the security's from the kurdish side of the city this is the truth when the u.s. leaves things will get worse it will be conflicts arabs will stand up and paraded and we should say with thirteen and this will. got for a bit but worse it will begin if we get. an example of this violence wasn't long in coming no more than five minutes after we finished the interview a roadside bomb targeting the police detonated in the center of the city. luckily for the police the terrorists missed it appears that despite the gains that the police are making. the american troop withdrawal could easily lead to or turn to sectarianism in care cook for kurds arabs and turkoman alike the consequences of the u.s. led war have left the future of kirkuk very much uncertain sebastian meyer care
